    Previous studies have shown that the male reproductive system is one of the most sensitive organs to electromagnetic radiation. However, the biological effects and molecular mechanism are largely unclear. Our study was designed to elucidate the epigenetic effects of 50 Hz ELF-EMF in vitro.

    Extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMF) are defined as those having frequencies up to Hz, representing a non-ionising radiation having photon energy too weak to interact with biomolecular systems. Exposure to low-frequency electric field and magnetic field (MF) generally results in negligible energy absorption in the by: 1. Since about , these 60 Hz magnetic fields (and their frequency harmonics) have been suspected of causing various types of negative health effects. These magnetic fields are commonly called extremely low frequency (or ELF) fields. Does ELF Present a Human Health Hazard? The most accurate answer is that no one really knows.

Introduction. Electric power transmission and distribution systems are becoming increasingly prevalent in the environment. This has raised public health concerns and accelerated research to identify possible biological effects associated with exposure to power-frequency electric and magnetic fields (NRC,Valberg et al.,Portier and Wolfe, ).Cited by: Exposure to EMFs (electromagnetic fields) results in a number of important biological changes, including modification of genetic expression.

We have investigated the effect of 60 Hz sinusoidal EMFs at a magnetic flux density of 80 μT on the expression of the luciferase gene contained in a plasmid labelled as pEMF (EMF plasmid). The possibility that conditions on the Sun and in the Earth’s magnetosphere can affect human health at the Earth’s surface has been debated for many decades.

Humans are surrounded by sources of daily exposure to power-frequency (60 Hz in North America) magnetic fields (MFs). Such time-varying MFs induce electric fields and currents in living structures which possibly lead to biological effects.

The present pilot study examined possible extremely low frequency (ELF) MF effects on human neuromotor control in general, and Cited by: 2. The APS study is limited to exposure to Hz EMF.
